A stunning jellyfish species with long white tails and beautiful purple body markings, the Purple Striped Jellyfish is great as an usual jellyfish for your tank.
While the Purple Striped Jellyfish is relatively easy to look after, particular attention should be paid to their long tails when keeping this species; ensuring their tails can’t become snagged or trapped in the tank.
These jellyfish do also have a sting, and therefore particular care must be observed when feeding or cleaning the tank – it is recommended to wear latex gloves when placing your hands inside the tank.
For these reasons, the Purple Striped Jellyfish is aimed at the more experienced jellyfish owner.
In an aquarium environment, the Purple Striped Jellies are supplied at around 2.5-8cms in size when purchased, and will obviously grow during their lifetime.
Multiple Purple Stripe Jellyfish are suitable for either the smaller Cubic Orbit 20 tank, or any of our larger jellyfish aquariums.
